Output 3: “Report Racism” Curriculum and Methodological Guide
After identifying the various forms of anti-migrant discourses and hate speech in the partner countries, a curriculum as well as a methodological guide will be developed aiming at the use of social networks as a bonding tool among participants. The idea here is to use popular socialising communication channels as venues to celebrate diversity and weaken racist bias and stereotypes, often leading to hate speech and aggressive behaviour online and offline. The objective of the methodological guide is to help the trainers implement the “Report Racism” training activities.
Output 4: Methodological Guide for the MATE Facilitators
This intellectual output involves a methodological guide for organising events facilitated by students, aiming at the discovery of shared cultural and social elements among migrants and locals. The participants share stories, show/exchange/touch objects, play games, and engage in other activities that are representative of their cultures.
The events’ impact can be summarised as:
– Mingle with migrants;
– Acknowledge similarities and diversity;
– Trust each other.
Output 5: Producing Awareness Campaigns Guide
The aim of this IO is to explore alternative approaches for engaging and understanding young people’s political activity and look at the adoption of social networks as a means to facilitate the connectivity among different networks and groups, engage young people of different ethnic and social background into common activities, promote different sets of social values, and most importantly reduce ethnic and race-based disparities and discriminations. Τhe participant students with the young migrants will be asked to design and implement an awareness campaign touching upon different aspects of racism and xenophobia and also on their own experience from participating in the project activities.
Output 6: “MATE” Online Platform
The “MATE” platform aims at systematising the approach of the project and it will act as a guide to stakeholders across the EU, on how to apply and repeat the project activities in different contexts. It will also be visually attractive. The platform will include open education resources in the form of: a) methodological guides for “Report Racism” activities, b) methodological guides for “MATE” activities, c) the curriculum developed in IO3.
